1. I would like to see staggered street signs. Impossible to see side streets, especially, at night.

2, A policy enforce to keep people from saving seats at the squares, for invisible people.

3. A Trader Joe's and Home Goods store would be nice. Last time I was at the Trader Joe's in Gainesville, I asked if TV, would ever get one and the cashier said, he was asked that at least 42 times a day.

we have a trader joes here in pembroke pines...florida...I have to tell you I dont get it......they sell items with names I do not recogonize, and a very limited supply of meats, prepackaged deli.....and lots of stuff I would never buy.

I perfer the old fashion italian markets we have, Doris's and western beef,

I only buy fruit from trader joes, I really just don't get the appeal they have to people.....

am I missing it?

on the plus side, we have 6 home goods stores within 15 miles of my home. Now that I get....big fan of Home goods

Kosher. Brined turkey during the holidays. No phosphate or nitrites. The brands are their own. Like groceries who use their own brands.

"their greed"? I think it is greedy to want to keep this beautiful place all to oneself and deny others a chance to live like a millionaire while paying middle-income prices for nice homes and property taxes, and only $140/month for all the costly amenities.

We lasted exactly 2 years to the day. Couldn't deal with the traffic and congestion and wall to wall people and houses. So we left!

Congestion is a big problem....streets are insufficient for the traffic. And don't even ask me about the tall weeds (greenery) at the round a bouts.....

We stopped filling out the questionnaire - same stuff every year and nothing, NOTHING, changes as far as our wants are concerned. Stores will open here if they see a need. Costco, Trader Joe's, etc., wouldn't open within TV, and would need a major incentive to build on 441/27, 301, 44, etc. BTW, folks who say TV is becoming congested like NYC have absolutely no idea what NYC is like! Yes, it's getting busier here, especially in the newer areas. The Colony shopping area is a nightmare, and will get worse with the opening of TV at Fruitland Park. Having come from Queens, NY, this is paradise!

Wow....the OP did not know they were lighting the keg of powder that awakens all those who don't like it here.

I bet they do not go to any public attractions.
No ball games.
No Disney or other theme parks.
No concerts.
When they travel they must take roads that only go through little towns.
They obviously come from places where they don't have to wait for a table in a restaurant (both of them).
No Grand Canyon.
No cruises.

How terrible can all that be?

And if the same folks were here 11 years ago they would have said how can we live here there are no major stores or restaurants. And the population was 35,000.

I am sure the moabers and groaners are entitled to their likes and opinions. And it is obvious they moved to the wrong location.

Also remember you will find less crowded, very quiet typical retirement communities.........and not the life extending and enjoying life style.

The 98% of us that are happy as clams feel bad for some of you....for about 2.675 nano seconds
